I would be David Nolan a.k.a. the Sheriff a.k.a. Prince Charming from Once Upon A Time any given day. If I was a TV series character, I would be like that – brave, intelligent, and charming.
Since my very first outfit post, it has been evident that I like getting under the influence of TV series when it comes to what I like to wear. The thing about fashion is that you get to be whoever you want to be without leaving your body. It’s not a matter of pretend but more like an exploration of your own character.
The lesson I’ve learned about wearing this outfit is that I am not a person of layers. I’m more like someone who just chooses to wear a sweater on a cold day and a plain ol’ shirt on a normal humid day. I simply don’t carry on an extra jacket or coat because I sweat easily. And because I’m very rigorous, getting one of my hands busy by holding an extra garment would be inefficient. I haven’t started layering until recently when I discovered how essential layers are especially that I’m living in a country where the weather is bipolar.
And just like what happened in season 4 in Storybrooke where everything got pretty chilly, the weather in the Philippines has been colder and wetter these past few days. I resorted to wearing lumberjack essentials with my outfit since it is practical given the fact that I could go indoors and outdoors, safe and secure with this look – kinda like a town sheriff but only with a button pin badge.
It might seem like a diversion from my usual out-there-street-chic looks but I still felt like myself wearing it. I figured that what satisfies me about styling is not always how I look but how I feel. Beauty is painful but personal style has to be comfortable.
